Animals instinctively know how to live, walk, breath and eat. So do humans, but we’ve largely forgotten how to do these things correctly, taking shallow breaths and eating thoughtlessly. Observing the humble, urban animals in my hometown of Providence, RI helps me get closer to understanding the essence of creature existence. Inspiration for art and the art of living often happens when I’m running in my local green space where many animals live. The art making happens in my basement studio and at AS220 Community Printshop.
